    Rochelle from UT Asked

    Joel, When you got your copy of Kingdom Keepers 3 autographed, did he just sign his name or did he dedicate it to you/your children. My autistic daughters LLLOOOVVVEEE Kingdom Keepers (might be worth a few day get-away). Does your niece, as well?

    Awe, Rochelle, how nice of you to think that I was doing the Kingdom Keepers book signing for someone else. In truth, I was looking out for #1: me. 

    More personal disclosure: I had already pre-ordered my book on Amazon when I learned that Ridley would be signing books at Epcot. So, I lingered in MouseGear and took some photos up close of Ridley signing other peoples' books. He did chat with every person when it was their turn. Seemed to be honored that so many people showed up to meet him and buy his new book.

    My little sister is autistic and it makes my day to see her light up. I don't presume to know Ridley, but he seems to pour his heart into making others happy through his work. I'd recommend dropping him an e-mail through his website or sending him an @ message or Direct Message on Twitter. He may not have time to reply to you, but it may register so that when he sees you and your daughters at the book signing, he'll be familiar with your story. Also, ask a cast member helping with the signing. I bet you'll be in luck!
